Asian elephants are considered endangered on the IUCN Red list. At the turn of the 20th Century, there were 100,000 elephants in Thailand. Today, there are less than 5,000.

We were honored to be contacted by Don Tayloe regarding his documentary film, "The Last Elephants in Thailand". Don's film is a sweeping account of the lives of domesticated elephants and what is being done to save them. Their habitat has been drastically reduced and they are rounded up and turned into slaves in logging camps or to perform in the tourism industry. Fortunately, there are people trying to save the animals, but they are under funded and undermined by politics.

This book is a companion piece to the documentary and as a visual biography, we hope that it will encourage people to reach out a helping hand. For more information on Don Tayloe's film, please visit

This was a very quick, but enjoyable project to do for one of our clients in Las Vegas. Our client had an existing business plan that they wanted to present at an upcoming meeting of investors. They wanted to give the investors something that represented their concept and that would be unique and memorable. So we converted the traditional business plan into a very beautiful presentation book.

Duomo to Como is a book we created for a client as a holiday gift. Three couples traveled through Italy and Switzerland on vacation. Each couple took hundreds of images during their vacation. Our client collected all the images and had us put together a book about their adventures. They then ordered three copies of the books and plan to give their friends the books as a surprise during the holidays.

This was a cute little book we did for a friend and client of ours who wished to tell her family that she was pregnant with her first child. The story is told from the point of view of her dog, Diego. Our client ordered several books and wrapped them as presents to everyone in her family. At the end of the book, Diego announces that he is going to be a "big brother".

We congratulate our friend and client on her new baby and hope the book is a real hit over the holidays!
